A lot of weird stuff, as it turns out.

Your guy friends might set up a fun dinner on one of the decks for you and some of the girls.

Or maybe on another night you and a bunch of Mexican chicks dress up as Koreans.

Probably mostly just because you both were being fake Asians.

You might stumble on a group of deckies (those who maintained the outside of the ship… aka the deck” in the kitchen around midnight making… who knows what, other than a big mess.

And then, when you are totally over being stuck on a boat for SEVENTEEN days in the row, you’ll even stoop to making Christmas bows. Because you’re so bored and tired of being on a ship for SEVENTEEN DAYS in a row.

And then to cap things off, the chef might set up the grills on the aft deck and make barbecue for 200 people. It it would be SO SWEET.

And it might almost be worth being stuck on a sailing ship for 17 days IN A ROW.
